COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
n 1985, McMenamins became the first brewery in the U.S.A. to legally use fruit in the creation of ales. While many other breweries have followed suit, we still make this Ruby exactly as we first did: Light, crisp and refreshingly fruity. Over 55 pounds of hand-macerated, fresh, whole raspberries are used in every batch. Taste the original!

Malts: Pale Malt
Hops: Chinook
Fruit: Whole Raspberries

On tap at the Hillsboro location..wait do they have more than one in Hillsboro? Anyway, pours a clear copper color with a medium white head. A light fruity nose, some earthy malt. The flavor is basically similar: light and clear berries, earthy dry malt, some light crispness. OK.

This is my favorite McMenamins beer. Its fruity and refreshing. Its great for summer drinking, watching live music, soaking in a McMenamins tub or otherwise running around one of their adult playgrounds.

A fruit beer, but you would never know. I tasted a lot of Wheat (which is probably not correct).

Draught at the Markey Street pub. Nice fruity, raspberry nose. Salmon pink with lace. Fruity, wheaty flavor, a bit creamy. Crisp, not too sweet, refreshing though not so tasty. Dry, crackery malt finish. Decent.

Fruity-berry taste, very fruity. (one taster said it was like bad applejuice). There is a soury flavor. Very nice ruby grapefruit color

Excellent summer beer. Just the right amount of fruitiness with the wheat earthiness. Very drinkable. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Looks just like grapefruit. Smells like ocean spray. Tastes like candy. No hops. I don’t like raspberry and this has a lot of raspberry.
